US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — Coronavirus is the most dangerous for people with diabetes, as well as other chronic diseases. This was announced on Thursday during a video briefing by the Director of the European Regional Bureau of the World Health Organization Hans Kluge.
“In diabetics, the disease is more severe and has more serious consequences,” he said. “In Italy, one out of three patients has diabetes or some other chronic illness, such as cancer or respiratory illness.”
“The same applies to overweight people, which clearly follows from the data received from China,” Kluge emphasized. “Therefore, a healthy lifestyle is extremely important. The healthier a person who becomes infected with a coronavirus infection, the better.”
The outbreak caused by the new coronavirus disease was recorded at the end of 2019 in Central China, spread to most countries and was recognized by the World Health Organization as a pandemic.
According to the latest data, more than 900 thousand people were infected in the world, more than 45 thousand deaths were recorded. In Russia, according to the data of the federal operational headquarters for the fight against coronavirus, 3,548 cases of infection were registered, 235 people recovered, 30 patients died.
The government launched the Stop Coronavirus.RF resource to inform about the situation in the country.
